I would like to replace the O2 sensor in my 91 loyale 4wd non turbo wagon
Whats the procedure to get it out without ripping the threads up?
should I but the special socket or will a box wrench work well enough?
should I put anti seize on the new one?
thanks


I'm getting a 3-2 light pulse....car seems to run okay,,,,maybe a tiny bit rough...anyone know?
I've had more lights come on this sub than all others I've owned since 11/1979

thanks
Bill

02 sensor; replace if you can. Don't sweat it if you can't. Pretty cheap item for a single wire generic O2 sensor.

will gas mileage suffer?

do you need a special wrench?
What kind of cost do you think?

thanks

Yes, probably... that is if you mean if you don't replace it.
22mm wrench; or there is also a special socket that has a cutout for the wire to slip through.

$25-35

Edit - Oh, and don't just go yanking it out. They tend to stick in their bungs, and then the threads just rip off and you have to run a thread chaser though its... well, its bunghole. Follow removal procedure in manual. end edit
